When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The eagle alone avoids the storm by flying above it. So, in the storms of life may your heart be like an eagle’s and soar above.” – Author Unknown

BJ’s Serenity Prayer

serenity prayer

A Serenity Prayer for everyone, especially those with anxiety, depression, and PTSD.

God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change,
The motivation to change the things I can,
And the strength to overcome.

Help me to live in the present,
Not worrying about the past or future.
With hope as my guiding light,
Accepting every test as a chance to succeed.

Enable me to learn from my missteps,
Not becoming upset by them.
With self-acceptance as my guiding light.
Changing every down thought to positive.

Enable me to live in such a way
To not be anxious or depressed.
With enough sleep, patience, self-compassion.
Fortifying myself to succeed.

Enable me to trust in you,
To surrender to your will.
Always knowing your power.
Becoming as happy in this life as possible.

–BJ Rae
